    Discount Rekkids (subsidiary of CBS, Inc.) and the Coop were the nads for new discs. Most of my experience was at the Rat and the Paradise, which I lived behind my 1st
    year at BU. No not literally. Just a couple hundred feet from my dorm.

    CSNY's Southern Man was about as much as they rocked out. I Agree. Some of the greatest live music ever was that 4 Way Street album. I wore mine out.

    Nice call on UK. In the dead of night is a desert island song for me. and there are a number of other great tunes in their underappreciated repertoire.

    Way too many great 70s bands to list.Some other 70s desert island tracks that come to mind:

    Venus----Television
    Black Rose-----Thin Lizzy
    Dr. Wu------Steely Dan
    Dissident Aggressor, Sinner, Beyond the Realms of Death, Victim of Changes----- Judas Priest
    Sails of Charon, Pictured Life---Scorpions
    Sabbath Bloody Sabbath, Snowblind, Thrill of it All, Symptom of the Universe---Black Sabbath
    Atomic Punk----------Van Halen
    Lost in Hollywood, Eyes of the World-----Rainbow
    Maggot Brain, Can you get to that-------Funkadelic
    For Yasgur's Farm, Theme From an Imaginary Western----Mountain
    Space Station #5---------Montrose
    Moonage Daydream------David Bowie
    Diamond in the Back, the makings of you, Pusherman----Curtis Mayfield

    If you want Hard Rock, IMO no band better than Richie Blackmore's Rainbow with Ronnie James Dio
    and Cozy Powell. Long Live Rock and Roll was one of the truly Great Hard Rock Albums of all time.

    No. It was called The Garage, or Upstairs at the Garage. It was on the 3rd floor of a renovated parking garage. It's now a shopping mall called "The Garage". Go figure. It had about 200 seats and served drinks, so it was part concert venue, part nightclub. This was early to mid 70s. I'm very familiar with the places you mention as I grew up nearby, but this place was very different and scored some decent names.

    Just found this the other day. Terry Kath blows it up!! Even the riff he does while the drummer struggles to get the kit set up rocks!!



    When he died, so did Chicago. Cetra went all Bieber.
